The 2020 European Research and Innovation Days was the first online edition and took place from September 22 to 24.
Consisting of a Policy conference and the Science is Wonderful! exhibition, the event brought together over 35 000 registered participants from 188 countries in 146 sessions under the policy conference, and the exhibition saw over 6000 visits, including from schools, universities and citizens.
The policy conference
The policy conference formed the core of the European Research and Innovation Days. Divided into ambitious plenary sessions spanning the depth and breadth of research and innovation in Europe, and specialised hubs covering 10 pivotal themes, it brought cutting-edge scientific research to concrete global problems.
Participants were able to chooseuropean-research-innovation-days-2020e from 10 hubs and engage with sessions that interested them. These sessions gave the opportunity to listen as experts shared their insights, and get involved in game-changing conversations about shaping the future. Each hub had a virtual front desk providing information on hub-specific topics, breakout rooms for dedicated discussions and meetings and a virtual meeting room for policy sessions.
